I am something of a River Cottage addict, and, with a 2 year old at home, when I noticed this book appearing in my recommendations I had a closer look. I did hesitate on whether to order it or not, given that I don't own any other books specifically aimed at feeding children. A read reveals that is an absolute bible on feeding your child - from breastfeeding all the way through to adulthood. Throughout the book preaches a message of trying to relax and give your child a balanced varied diet.

Before getting into the recipes, the book gives advice on a number of areas including why to cook for your children - ranging from the better taste, control in what goes in to reducing packaging. Good food shopping is next on the list. All fairly obvious, but it does set the book firmly in the River Cottage corner. Despite providing a normal index at the back, Nikki gives a very thorough and useful 6 page table, split up by vegetable/fruit, giving when it is in season, how to store it, what do with a glut and where the recipes are in the book. Glut ideas - for apples - range from pureeing to grating to use in cakes, coleslaw and burgers. This Raw Ingredients chapter ends with the things to avoid - E-numbers, processed foods and too much sugar/salt and the wrong sort of fat.

The next chapter is The First Year - the great food adventure begins. This chapter includes breastfeeding, formula feeding, milk (even what formula to choose),when to wean, weaning, allergenic food and reluctant eaters.

Nutrition - what exactly does your child need - follows next.

really great book, discusses baby led and 'standard' weaning and really promotes a mix of the two to suit you - ideal in my opinion and just what i was looking for
lovely recipes, healthy, simple and lots of tips too

Saw a friends copy of this and she made me the date and apricot loaf which was gorgeous and uses no sugar in the recipe. Decided to buy it after noticing that there were quite a few dairy free recipes that me and my son (both milk protein intolerant) could eat. Have tried making a few of the recipes and looking forward to making some more.

Not very baby friendly and some recipes bit rubbish; like roast chicken. Most know how to roast a chicken. I was looking for inspiration for meals for my baby and this book hasn't helped really. Not many recipes, lots of talk on weaning.

Great recipes for babies! Love that it includes recipes for BLW and recipes are divided into seasons to include seasonal fruit and veg accordingly.

I have made a few recipes from this book now for my 9 month old baby. He was born 2 months premature so he really is 7 months developmentally and not really ready for BLW food - but we had to wean him at 6 months actual age anyway, so we do the recipes that can be pureed. I am a big fan of River Cottage as I fully take on board the way of life that it extols. The recipes in this book also work well with the mostly local and seasonal ingredients that I can buy easily through our weekly vege box supplier.
We have had some pretty good dishes, such as the carrot and lentil soup, mackerel with potatoes and onions, champ-cannon, the bolognese sauce and the venison stew (sans herb dumplings) which we ALL thought was delicious. Tonight I made Fish Pasta al forno as I discovered that I had to roast the beetroot for the beetroot coleslaw for 1-2 hours before getting started. The taste of the food seems to get a big thumbs up from us.
But where the book does fall down is that the last three dishes I have mentioned seem to take an absolute age to make. The Fish dish was made in so many different parts, using up loads of pots and pans in the process as well. The problem is that when you have a baby, you simply do not have the time to make these dishes - and I am a stay at home mother of only 1 child - which is probably the easiest out of all the permutations of working setups and family size. There are of course some very easy recipes in this book as well. But the only time I can make time to do these dishes is after the baby goes to bed - which means he gets the food for his lunch the next day.
I think the next book (if there is to be one?) should focus on FAST and nutritious.

This is a great book. Half of it is information and advice (which is measured and helpful). The other half is recipes by season and they are really good. I don't always follow the recipes, but they give me inspiration to try things and not hold back on spices, herbs, butter, milk etc. I would really recommend.

I've made many of the recipes from this book for my son and the rest of the family. Great for weaning and toddler stages
